Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

In his Ph.D. thesis, Alan Macquarrie tells us, he wanted to answer the question; what was the impact of the crusading movement on Medieval Scotland? Scotland and the Crusades is an adaptation of his answer to the question that he posed to himself. In his preface, Professor Macquarrie lists several articles he has had published, the view of Holy War in Scotland and a brief overview of the Knights of St. John in Scotland to name two, which are not in the current work. It is hard to imagine what could be contained in these articles, if one considers the information he has included in this work.
